(New York, New York, November 15, 2018) Today, thanks to a historic partnership with Dubset Media, J.PERIOD is proud to announce a milestone: The Live Mixtape [#Top5MCs Edition], a one-of-its-kind Hip Hop mixtape—performed and recorded LIVE on stage in one take—and available today, for the first time ever, on all major streaming platforms.
For this groundbreaking live recording, J.PERIOD recruited three of Hip Hop’s undisputed microphone kings (Rakim, Black Thought, and Pharoahe Monch) to re-ignite the timeless Hip Hop debate—who’s your Top 5 MCs?—in electrifying fashion: onstage for a sold-out crowd in New York City!
Seamlessly mixed by J.PERIOD (featuring special guests: Smif N Wessun, Black Sheep Dres, Mumu Fresh and Stro Elliot), The Live Mixtape [#Top5MCs Edition] is a live Hip Hop album unlike any other, and a blueprint for a new kind of mixtape experience from J.PERIOD, the DJ/Producer behind The Hamilton Mixtape (Billboard #1, RIAA-certified Gold), and award-winning collaborations with Q-Tip, Common, Nas, Lauryn Hill, Mary J. Blige and more.
2018 has already seen epic performances of The Live Mixtape at The Kennedy Center, Brooklyn Academy of Music, The Roots Picnic, and Louder Than a Bomb Festival, but none more memorable—or historic—than The Live Mixtape [#Top5MCs Edition]. The debate over Hip Hop’s “Top 5 MCs” is a cornerstone of The Culture, and The Live Mixtape [#Top5MCs Edition] is a jolting reminder of the power of real MC’s—true microphone masters, witnessed live, in the flesh. This is a Hip Hop Moment, captured.
And now, thanks to J.PERIOD & Truelements Music partnering with tech-meets-rights- management pioneer, Dubset Media, The Live Mixtape [#Top5MCs Edition] will finally be available for the world to hear.
One legendary night. And we got it all on tape.
